    Canada - Abdulbasir 'Basir' Faizi, 42, Toronto, 28 Dec 2010


    Abdulbasir Faizi, 47, was last seen leaving his workplace on Kitimat Road in Mississauga at approximately 7 p.m. He called his wife and told her he was going out with a co-worker.

    He was driving his 2002 Nissan, which was found abandoned seven days later in the area of St. Clair Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road in Toronto. Its discovery did not help police find Faizi.
    Peel’s 21 Division detectives say they have conducted an “extensive” investigation in the time since he vanished, but have been unable to find him

    Two years ago, Toronto police said his disappearance could be linked to two other men who have gone missing in the Church Street/Wellesley Street East area of Toronto, commonly known as Toronto’s Gay Village.

    Police said they had determined his last known location was at an establishment in that area.
    Faizi is described as Middle Eastern, 5-foot-9, weighing approximately 175 pounds at the time of his disappearance and had black hair with a black goatee. He was last seen wearing a brown winter jacket, a black T-shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

    Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Const. Shawn Birnie of the 21 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-3311 ext. 2133. Information can also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by visiting www.peelcrimestoppers.ca or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637) with the word “PEEL” and then your tip.

    The whereabouts of a third man who was also last seen in the Village — Abdulbasir Faizi, 44 — also remains unknown.

    Navaratnam and Faizi both disappeared in late 2010 within two months of each other and Kayhan was reported missing to Toronto Police in October 2012.

    Rennie said he believed Kayhan had a wife and kids in another country and thought, “Maybe he went back there. I would just see him on the street by himself, walking up and down.”

    Both of the men he knew used to hang out at Woody’s during the day.

    Another bartender, David Kraft, said he discovered through chats that Navaratnam he was “an easy going person.”

    “We used to see him with a lot of the other regulars and he seemed to do everyday things,” he said. “It was shocking to know he disappeared.”
